2021 International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience - Digital Edition (28th of June –1st of July)

The International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (ICMNS) is an
inter-disciplinary conference series, bringing together theoretical neuroscientists and mathematicians. The conferences are aimed at scientists interested in using or developing mathematical techniques for neuroscience problems.

ICMNS was launched in 2015 and has been organised 6 times to date.
Owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, this edition will be held online from the 28th of June to the 1st of July 2021 between 15:00 and 18:00 (GMT+2).

ICMNS 2021 will be broadcasted live on our YouTube channel, on which we will also upload all talks after the conference. Please subscribe to our channel to receive updates.


The conference is free of charge, but the programme and Zoom links to attend the event will only be sent to members of the ICMNS Digital mailing list.

  • If you are already registered on the mailing list, no further action is required.

Contributed mini-talks

For this year's ICMNS2021 we are not offering posters or conventional contributed talks, but you are invited to contribute a "Micro-talk" which is a one slide, very short virtual presentation to the whole audience. The micro-talk session is followed by an opportunity to virtually meet other participants of ICMNS2021 for discussions about individual micro-talks. Please submit using this form within the 4th of June 2021.
